Modelling Ireland's roadmap to netzero

The impact of the built environment, its operation, and to a greater extent its construction are currently poorly quantified. The high-level national climate emissions inventories produced by the EPA do not relate data directly to the construction sector. This makes it difficult to define policy for the built environment – a key sector to target if we are to mitigate climate change. 

The (opens in a new window)draft report is available online on the IGBC website. In this stage of the project BIACE will investigate scenarios and strategies to get our built environment on a pathway to net-zero by 2050, and firstly meet our 2030 targets.
